Luxury podCongratulations to York Holiday a Cycle Stop in Holtby, near York, named recently as the Best Countryside Hotel in Britain in the Simply The Guest 2017 awards, run by following glowing customer reviews. Opened in 2015, the site offers guests accommodation in a choice of either a basic pod or luxury pod with free Wi-Fi, secure cycle storage and wash down facility from £40 per night.

“We focus on our unique selling points, with our proximity to York and the Way of the Roses cycling route, the extra facilities for cyclists and also with the attention we pay to the landscaping around the site,” says Ben Smith, who runs the site with his father Trevor. “The other thing we try really hard to do is chat to as many of our guests as we can with an eye to continuously improving their experience and what we do. It has led to us getting such nice reviews and so many returning guests.”
